How 2 Decide What to Donate
How 2 Decide
What to Donate

Many people call a professional organizer because they simply don't know where to start. 

De-cluttering is not a straight forward task as you might know. It can be overwhelming and confusing, especially if you have a lot of stuff.

 Learning the techniques that will help you decide what should stay and what should go makes the whole process seem more manageable. 

The ladies of M2O also talk you through some of the emotional obstacles you may face as you tackle the challenge of letting go.

The brave new world of a de-cluttered space is well within your reach. And once you get there, not only will your load be lightened but your burdens will be too.

Featured Donation Center

Many shelter residents come to CCO without the basic items for day to day health and well being. Something as simple as a toothbrush and toothpaste are valuable items for someone who is currently without an income. 

Our ongoing resident requests are...
-Cleaning Supplies
-Laundry Detergent
-Baby Wipes
-Wash cloths

All these items can be mailed to or dropped off at 4628 N. Clifton Chicago, IL 60640.

Reduce Reuse Recycle

We're just going to be straight forward. Purging and donating are two activities that should be done on a regular basis. 

It's inevitable. As you bring in new acquisitions, eventually something is going to have to go or you will simply run out of space. 

Some of our clients battle with letting go. It's something that we, as professional organizers, help our clients work through. In this issue of M2O Buzz, you get it all for free! 
This month, you have the unique opportunity to work with our team of two for 3 hours of power de-cluttering. It's called the 3-2-1 Rapid Release. Take on the challenge and turn off the excuses.

What better time to talk about donating and purging than now. With NAPO-Chicago's 3rd annual De-clutter Drive Thru right around the corner, you have one place to drop off all of your donations, recyclables and shredding. It's a no-brainer!
What Am I Going To Do
With All This Stuff?!

Think about all those times that you tried on a pair of your most unflattering jeans, decided to not wear them and then put them back in your closet. Since the invention of smart phones, you haven't used the timer in the kitchen or the clock next to your bed. Examples of the useless items that we keep around is endless but there is only one solution. Purge, purge, purge!

One of the best ways to de-clutter is to donate your items. Helping others by giving them the stuff you don't need anymore keeps the items out of landfills and fills our hearts with joy. Add to that the benefits of more simplicity and space in your home. Once you gather the items you don't need anymore, separate all broken or worn out items for recycling. Then you're left with only the items that are ready to be donated.

The next step is to decide where to donate your items. This is particularly important if you want to make sure your goods go on to find another life. Journey with us as we discover the best places to donate your unwanted items.


Donate to causes
close to your heart

At this point of life, we all have causes or organizations that are dear to our hearts. For personal reasons we love to help these causes as much as we can. If you are not already involved with an organization, search online for the charity of your choice or for a cause that speaks to you. What kind of donations do they accept and have a particular need for?


Search by items

If you have an overabundance of prescription glasses, shoes, clothing, cell phones or any group of items, donate them separately to specific causes. Search online for places that focus on collecting these special items in your area. For example, SOLES4SOULS  has special programs for donating shoes. Lions Clubs collects donated glasses plus they conveniently have drop of locations set up all over the country.  




A Message from the Co-founders...
A client turned to us earlier this month and said, "Wow, organizing is heavy stuff, huh? I'm unearthing all of these strong emotions from memories I haven't seen in a while."

Boy, was he right! Dealing with your "stuff" means dealing with all the emotions that come with the actual object too. 

Surprisingly people keep many things that have negative emotions attached to them. If looking at something makes you feel sad, mad, worried or anxious, it's time to let it go. Life is too short to be surrounded by negative energy. 

Pass these objects on to someone who knows nothing of their history and can therefore appreciate and use them. A new life for the object...and YOU!

Change your surroundings, change your outlook with the ladies of M2O. Contact us anytime by email or through our website. You'll be glad you did!
